MLB FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest MLB trends, the Rays are 1-5 last 6 road games, 2-6 last 8 vs. NL West and 0-4 last 4 interleague games vs. a left-handed starter. Dodgers are 23-8 in Kershaw's last 31 Sunday starts, 11-1 last 12 during game 3 of a series and 25-6 last 31 games vs. a right-handed starter.

The Tampa Bay Rays are in a rough stretch. They blew a 6-0 lead against the Dodgers on Friday night, spoiling a great performance by David Price. It's tough to recover from a complete meltdown from their bullpen and they had nothing left on Saturday, falling 5-0. The Dodgers have won four straight games to improve to 19-3 since the All-Star break. Amazingly, they are 11-0-4 in their last 15 series. The Rays are getting cold at the wrong time as they have fallen three games behind Boston in the AL East and are just 2.5 games from falling out of the wild card race. They turn to Jeremy Hellickson (10-5, 4.77 ERA), who has struggled as of late, allowing nine runs in his last two starts, both against Arizona. He faces one of the best pitchers in the game in Clayton Kershaw (10-7, 1.91 ERA), who hasn't received a lot of run support but should still win the Cy Young award. Kershaw has allowed two runs or fewer in 10 of his last 12 starts. He also owns a 1.59 ERA at home as batters are hitting .198 against him. The Dodgers get the sweep and another game from Kershaw.
